Qadi Ansar Abbasi

Mar 19th, 2011 | By | Category: Jang, The News

Ansar Abbasi is donning the robes of justice again, just as he did last year when he took suo moto notice of NAB and, despite a total lack of evidence, accused the government of launching a full frontal attack against the Chief Justice.
